Fire destroys Concord house

A massive fire left a Concord home in a condition of total loss Monday afternoon, but the building’s occupants were luckily able to escape without being hurt.

Concord fire officials said the fire was fully engaged when firefighters arrived on the scene at 865 Accent Avenue in the southeast part of the city.

Firefighters from Concord Fire & Life Safety and Coldwater Volunteer Fire Department had to struggle hard to contain the fire. After the aggressive blaze was contained, all that remained was the house’s brick façade.


One woman was reportedly inside the house when the blaze broke out. She was able to escape without suffering any injury. The woman’s son, David Terwillinger, said he was riding his dirt bike nearby when he saw smoke coming from his house. He added that once he was assure that his mother was outside the burning house and okay, he went for help.

Terwilliger told investigators, “The phone was dead so I had to ride up to the Mexican store to call for help.”

The Cabarrus County Chapter of the American Red Cross was also on the scene to assist the family. The cause of the destructive fire is yet to be determined.
